This large boulder has a handful of decent problems from V-easy to V6 on it's heavily lichened north face and one forgettable and gritty problem on the south face. The easier problems tend to have bad landings while the harder ones are fairly high making a pad or spotters nice to have if you plan on pitching off.

Getting There 

Located equidistant between the Hoi Polloi Boulder to the east and the problem Picture Perfect (V1) to the west and at the southern edge of a large open area.
